Psychological test is required for admission in medical college in Uttarakhand | Tech US News


The Government Medical College in Haldwani, Uttarakhand has introduced a mandatory psychological assessment in the admission process this year.

Earlier, only general medical tests were conducted for admission to MBBS and MD-MS courses in the college.

The general health test included nose-ear-throat (ENT), ophthalmological, medical radiological and pathological examination of all candidates. Candidates also had to undergo a gynecological examination.

This year, however, a psychological evaluation of candidates became mandatory for admission to medical schools. Government Medical College, Dehradun Public Relations Officer Alok Upreti said that the students’ behavior, personality and work ability will be assessed with the help of a psychological test.

He said: “The purpose of this test is to ensure timely treatment of students suffering from depression or any other mental problem so that it does not affect their studies in any way.” According to sources, three or four such students were admitted to Haldwani’s Government Medical College every year, suffering from some kind of mental problem.

As a result, such students cannot complete the coursework within the time limit and some of them take five to six years to complete their MBBS course, they said.

Many students also have mental problems due to their tendency to use drugs.

Haldwani Medical College has a total of 100 seats for MBBS and MD-MS courses for which the admission process is underway.

There are four government and three private medical colleges in Uttarakhand.
